However, there is still a great deal to be done in those areas worst hit, including Biloxi and Gulfport, Mississippi. Fairytale Brownies, a gourmet brownie bakery based in Phoenix, will team up with Hands On USA to distribute brownies to these communities the week of December 26th. “We hope our brownies will bring a smile to those displaced by Katrina,” says Eileen Spitalny, founder and CEO of Fairytale Brownies. “But more importantly, we hope this gesture shows that the rest of the country has not forgotten about them, especially during the holidays.” Hands On USA is a non-profit group dedicated to disaster response and relief. Volunteers from around the country are clearing debris, gutting homes, removing mold and distributing food, water, and supplies to those in need.. “We are thrilled to join with Fairytale Brownies to send this message of hope and happiness, which can be just as precious as brick and mortar at time like this,” says Suzanne Stahl, a volunteer with Hands On USA. These efforts are just the beginning. In the coming months, much work will be put into clearing debris, moving people out of tents and into trailers, stabilizing the base infrastructure of the coastal cities of Mississippi and providing not only life essential, but emotional support to the survivors of Katrina - who are very determined to regain normalcy in their lives.
